Maybe one day ... but for now, I like my relatively quiet enclave.
Yeah, I grew up a block north of it and most of my neighborhood friends grew up in DP, so I have a lot of great memories there. But I think the city could really use some connectivity in that part of the city, considering it links the Loop with some important near south neighborhoods like Chinatown, Pilsen, and Motor Row, and it's also a natural place for another mid rise neighborhood (if done right).
